This month, we've decided to switch up our hours a bit - on Tuesdays and Thursdays, the updated hours will be 9am-1pm & 3pm-6pm. This enables us to add some later appointments at the end of the day to accommodate work schedules a bit easier! Our Monday and Friday hours will remain the same!

In our office, we often talk about the 3 types of stress that interfere with your body’s ability to heal, adapt & recover: physical stress, emotional stress, chemical stress.
Each and every one of these stressors disrupts your body’s ability to heal, adapt and recover. Regular chiropractic adjustments help your body to counteract these stressors of daily life!
We all know activity is important, but did you know that YOUR physical activity habits may be able to influence your child's physical activity level?
A study out the University of Essex in England had children perform a simple running test and were asked questions about their parents' perceived activity levels and fitness habits. The ones that knew at least one of their parents did some sort of physical activity or sport were more likely to meet and/or exceed the health-related fitness standards. When they knew both parents were physically active, they were even more likely to perform better than their peers on the physical tests.
Children who said their parents do almost no physical activity had a 50% greater risk of being unfit than children with more physically active parents.
What does this tell us?
In an ideal world, you'll spend your free time doing physical activity with your kids, but this study tells us that even if your child just OBSERVES you doing some form of physical activity, it can have an effect on them and their endurance, athletic ability and motivation to MOVE!
